Please provide a brief Author Bio ( 60 to 100 words maximum, please. )
Brien Travis is an American singer-songwriter whose experimental eclectic style incorporates elements of modern rock, jazz, folk, and electronica. He is one of the few pop musicians who have brought the piano and synthesizers to center stage as main instruments. He writes, performs, produces, and records most of his work completely solo, with occasional guests.
Born of Irish and Italian roots, he began playing the piano at a very early age as a toddler, and was later formally trained before tracking off on his own path to hone his own personal style of playing.
His songs, while being nonconformist in genre, cover the spectrum of human connection-often either in an enigmatic form or in journal-like sequences that more often than not play out like a walk through an art gallery. His songs ask questions rather than provide answers. His influences range across the music grid-from John Denver to Bjork, The Mamas and the Papas to Laurie Anderson, Leonard Cohen to Tori Amos. Travis was a child of the 80’s, and grew up on new wave pop like Cyndi Lauper and Tears For Fears. You can hear all of this in his original music.
He has released several “basement” EP’s and in 2009 released his full length album “Tales Of Lazy Wednesdays” to critically acclaimed reviews. He has also released several instrumental projects, as well as composes music for television and film scores.
He is also a photographer and writer, and a self-proclaimed "foodie" who enjoys creating new and original recipes in the kitchen.
He is currently at work on a new album as well as writing his first book, which he plans on sharing in chapter increments on his blog, WhatAboutBrien.com
